I ported some stories from restful_authentication so that they can use
cucumber, and it worked fine in `rake features`.

Now when I try to run under autospec or `cucumber features`, I'm getting
failures with undefined method `get'.  When I change 'get' to 'visit',
same symptom (undefined method `visit'), but I'm getting other issues
(redirects not being detected or issued) when running in rake.

I can't see that I'm doing anything out of the ordinary.  I have require
"webrat/rails" in my support/env.rb, along with... well, here's my

Anybody have ideas what could be going on here?

I'm running it like so:

$ cucumber features/

I've also tried using

  --require config/boot.rb --require features
  --require config/environment.rb

and now, I've tried with

  --require lib --require features features/  (nope)

  --require features --require lib features/  (yes!)

Shazaaaayam!  Okay, thank you for the hint.  Lessee, then for
autospec... aha.  Yep.  cucumber.yml, check.  Added these working args
to the autotest and autotest-all config, working well now.

Okay, updated the wiki page to add some details.  These work for me now.

I'd appreciate a review of this stuff I've added - hopefully it provides
more help than harm to others in my situation. :)
